Scariest Time Of My Life

On Saturday me and my dad went to a place called the Spookers 10 Years Of Scare, it was very far from Auckland, it took us about two hour to get there. Finally after all that driving me and my dad had arrived at the Spooker. I was extremely scared when I was in front of the haunted hospital. I wanted to go back home but my dad said, ''No.'' so we stayed. There were two people who were came with me and told my dad that me and my dad should go to the haunted hospital. My dad was the first one to go in the hospital, then we all followed because the security said that my dad had to be the leader. That was the scariest day of my life.

Syndicate Assembly Room 12

Last week on Monday it was our turn to be the host for the syndicate assembly. So what we did was an activity called, 'Class Feud'. some of the answer were easy and some of them was not. It was funny when people randomly said the wrong answer. When half of our assembly was over and it was time for certificates and Samuel and Anavea had received a certificate from Mrs Golder, for being responsible and for having good manners. Lastly our assembly had come to an end and it was time to go back to class and start learning again.

Worst Holiday Ever

September 16 was the last day of term 3 and the holiday had began. My holiday was boring because we had to stay home for the whole holidays and the only thing we can do was help my mum and watch television. that's it. Luckily my dad was so kind that he took to a place called Ice Skating. It was very hard learning how to skate. It took me about two hours to learn. We came back home at 10:30 pm. That was the best day of my two weeks holiday.

Trip To Botanic Garden

Today the whole Ruapotaka School went to a very beautiful place called the Botanic Gardens.

The Gardens is about native plants and the environment like pond, flower, rocks and trees. It was pretty fun but the only thing I didn't like was the hot sun.

It was too sunny that I felt like drinking a whole bottle of water.

My favourite part was when we had to go in the forest. It was shady and it was nice and cold in the forest because of the trees. That's why the forest was my favourite place to visit.

Anzac Ceremony

On the last day of Term One, after lunch we had an Anzac Ceremony at our school for the soldiers that went to war for us to live. At the Ceremony people read some poems and some people talked about the soldiers.

After all those poems and talking, we all had to stand up and sing the National Anthem.

When we finished the Anzac Ceremony, we all had to go back to our classroom because the bell was going to ring and we all had to go home. Then one minute later the bell rang.  It is time for us to go home and enjoy our holiday so we all said good bye and we went home happily.

Special Assembly

Last week on Thursday, a special person from Vector came to our school and her name was Esther. She talked to us about electronics and windmills.

She showed us her cardboard helicopter that moves when the sun is shining on it or put a flash light on it. After that she asked some questions and gave some stickers if we got the answer right. Then she talked to us about how much electricity that we are using in our house or any where else.

At the end she showed us her electronic car. It was so awesome the car can move by  itself under a sun or under a flashlight. My favourite thing was the electronic car but the helicopter wasn't bad.
